As global interest in the art and culture reaches new heights, art collectors are tasked with managing logistics at a global scale.
Free Trade Zones are an integral part of the operations behind institutional collections but are rarely leveraged by burgeoning collections. Pulling on insights from an art-focused global logistics firm, this webinar demystifies Free Trade Zone storage facilities.
Participants will take away:
- How art institutions leverage Free Trade Zones today.
- The benefits of integrating FTZs in an art collection’s logistics framework in a global context.
- Challenges and tips to activate Free Trade Zones.
